Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The bottom photo looks like Stocking island off Georgetown, Exhumas, Bahamas.

I think the upper photo is a lot of dogs bollocks and you inserted it to try and throw us off the track.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No and no...
Both images - though differently formatted - are from the same area...
Look at the rail in the lower image at the bottom - it is the same viewing platform you see in the upper image...

Not sure why but it looks more Pacific than Atlantic.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Because you could go surfing?

If the sign on the platform is warning "Do Not Climb on Rails!" I would say its Australia

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

A hint:
The bay is named after a wreck which is lying there in the sand...
The wreck is not very famous though, but it is washed out of the sand every now and then...

Recherche Bay is on the extreme south-eastern corner of Tasmania, Australia. It was a landing place of the d’Entrecasteaux expedition to find missing explorer La Pérouse. It is named after the Recherche, one of the expedition's ships.
